Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Wednesday, 24 June 2009

The Caravelle Hotel in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam, has invested over $100,000 in a suite of new health and fitness products.

We want the Caravelles fitness center to rank as the single best place in Ho Chi Minh City for a workout, said John Gardner, general manager of the hotel. Thats why we now keep the center open 24 hours a day, and its why weve invested in the new Star Trac machinery.

The jewels in the new Star Trac package are the companys E Series cardio trainers, including four elevating treadmills embedded with televisions, two body trainers, two upright bikes, a recumbent bike and a stepper. The two body trainers are completely new fitness options at the Caravelle.

The Los Angeles-based company is also delivering urethane dumbbells, Olympic plates, and a range of machines in Star Tracs Instinct line, including presses, pull-downs, benches and racks.

Last September, the Caravelle opened the doors on its 128-square-meter fitness center to in-house guests all day and night, every day and every night.

As one of the premier business hotels in one of Asias most dynamic business destinations, the Caravelle found that many guests from distant time zones required access to the center when their body clocks were still chiming high noon in the small hours of the night.
